Fossil Camp

17-June to 21-June from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Ages 6-12 (Please note that due to the intensive nature of our camps, we are unable to accommodate children under 6 years of age.)

Children will learn about specific geological epochs and the associated dinosaur’s species that dominated at the time. Each day will feature a different time period (Triassic, Jurassic, etc) and include crafts and activities highlighting the day’s lesson. As children become familiar with the full range of extinct species, they will make fossil replicas in the classroom. The budding paleontologists will also spend time outdoors excavating and assembling dinosaur fossils that they find in the sand pit.

This camp will include a field trip to the Eco-Discovery Center where students will learn about the local geology and fossil beds. Following the Eco-Discovery Center, the students will visit Fort Taylor where they will explore the park area to find and identify fossils.

Instructors: Rick “Deadeye” Wheelus, Kevin Lisinski,and Crystal Smith
